One of the bloggers I follow is Marty Damon at Welcome Words. She recently self published a book that I just finished. I found it to be a quick and entertaining read.
Anyone that can imagine, complete and publish a novel is amazing in my mind. Most bloggers are frustrated authors but few actually make it to the publication stage. When they can make the book interesting to read and at a price I can afford--- well that deserves notice.
Earthly Needs is in digital form but you don't need Kindle to enjoy. It can be downloaded right to your computer or pad.
While this book will definitely appeal to teachers or those in the education system, anyone can enjoy this story and can relate. Unless you were home schooled, you will recognize the situations, the politics of the educational system and the characters will seem familiar.
The teen characters are right out of today and the teachers pretty much the way I remember. The assistant principal thank goodness was a type I never had to deal within the business world. He reeked of being totally self obsessed with no scruples. I found myself hoping that an overloaded semi would smush him. Sadly one didn't but he made me that angry.
There is a touch of romance but unlike 50 Shades of Grey (which I never read so I am guessing), the sex is implied, not described in minute detail. For some that will be a plus, for some a minus.
The flow was easy and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style. Marty has a unique, often amusing way with words.
This is her first novel but I am sure not the last. This one ended a bit abruptly so possibly there will be a part two?
The price was in my ball park, $2.99 or free on Kindle unlimited. Three bucks is pretty much my limit.
Hope you will check it out. I think you will enjoy, especially you teachers.
